As a result, we have earned the support of the used vehicle companies of manufacturers such as Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mazda and Subaru, and we are standardizing evaluation in order to further improve trust in used vehicles, and stimulate the used vehicle market.

What is "Inspection in the Industry"?

About the inspection in a motor vehicle industry of Japan  
Inspection in the used vehicle market involves evaluating quality. Unlike the new vehicles sold by new vehicle dealers, used vehicles arise because their owners – primarily ordinary customers – decide to let go of them for some reason.
At present, most vehicles displayed or purchased by used vehicle dealers are traded via auction houses, but used vehicles each have their own price, and are never in exactly the same condition. Therefore, there are large differences in price between different units. In other words, used vehicles differ greatly in price due to their use condition, and inspection is the task of determining this vehicle value.
